Yeah, it sucks. Im just trying to keep the DT water quality good for my nems and corals.

I have a feeling the green chromis will survive though. Those things are so tough. One of them has survived ever since I started and all the muckups i've been through! lol

Sorry to hear about all the bad luck with fish. Is there still Ick present on any of the fish and are you sure it's Ick and not lymphocystis. They look the same and the fish acts the same by trying to rub and scratch them off. Google it see if it matches up.

Coral beauty has white spots, acting fine though. I can't catch him though so I either have to wait until he gets near death and barely moving or just let him die in the tank. Im scared I'll kill the corals if i move the rock and stir things up.

Is lymphocystis a protozoan parasite?

The two green chromis look fine in QT with copper.

It's a virus that looks like Ich but there's no cure to it. They just try to scratch it off and it usually falls off in 1-3 months. The best thing to do is keep the fish stress free.

Oh, no, that's not it. No clumping/cauliflower like stuff. Just salt like specs.

Oh that's good then, well not that your fish died but it's not the virus and it's something treatable. When I got Ich in my 12g I couldn't do QT so I dosed quick cure (malachite green and formalin) in my tank at half dosage every day for a week then ran an additional week no water change without carbon or skimmer. It cured everything and all my frags and inverts lived but my acro colony died

Fish were stress free and fine for 6+ months.
Nothing happened till I brought the first few corals in. I'm confident that's what brought something with it.

Oh, dang.
Yeah I've never had luck with treatments. Fish get ich and die, that's about how it goes. :P

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
